Which wall mount for 8351?

Your catalogue is clear about which wall mount should be bought for 8250. (Model no.8000-402.) But even though the 8351 is the same size as the 8250 it is a lot heavier. Can the same wall mount be used?

According to your catalogue, the wall mount for 8260 (Model no. 8260-414) will not work for the 8250. But will it work for the 8351?

I'm about to buy wall mounts for my 8040As. And I would love it if I could keep them if I upgrade to 8351 in the near future. (Or perhaps keep them even for a pair of 8361s - if such a beast ever gets into production.)

Hi,

Thank you for your question, we obviously need to update our accessories catalogue.

Wall mount model. no 8000-402 has a maximum load of 15 kg so it can be used up to 8x50 sized speaker.

Wall mount model no. 8260-414 can be used for 8x50 and 8x40, and should be used for 8351 and 8260.

Hello,

the 8260-414 can also be used for the 8x40!
- you have to remove the mounting plate and screw the speaker direct to the swivel joint with two
cap screws ISO 4762 - M6x12 (NOT included!) and washers.

regards

Klaus

Wauw, thank you, Klaus, that's what I'm going to do!

I'll love the flexibility of being able to change monitors without having to use different mounts and having to drill new and cover old holes in my wall.

Is the 8351 housing designed to be wall mounted by just the mid 2 mounting points?

Speaker wall mount K&M 24481-000-55 looks like a good fit, just not sure how many mounting points the 8351 requires.

Please update catalogue

The accessories catalogue still needs an update.

The current version is from 2013 and thus misses all the recent models.

8351 required four fixing points due to high weight, so 8260-414 (K&M 24478-000-55) is the mount that should be used with that particular model.

Hi Pete,

Yes we know this and are in the process of updating it. New version will be hopefully ready already during this summer!

Thanks - to use the 4 outer mounting points, can the combination of Speaker Wall Mount K&M 24481-000-55 together with Adapter Plate 2 K&M 24354-000-55 be used?

My problem: cannot find a dealer in Europe that still has part Genelec 8260-414B or K&M 24478 in its catalog.
Look like K&M has changed its product line in 2015 and now has a modular system (wall mount and adapter have separate part numbers).

Hi,

8260-414B is a specific mount made just for us so you need to order it through one of our dealers. Please locate your local distributor and for contact information of their dealers: http://www.genelec.com/where-buy

Hi,

this combination works also well, but the needed screws to mount the Genelec 8351 to the adapter plate (4 pieces M6x14 & 4 washers) are not included!

Hi, thank you for the answer.
I will interpret the term "at the moment" that theres is a chance that this could change in the future. :)

Hello Knut,

if you need a white wall mount you can take the follwing:

K&M 24481-000-57 + K&M 24352-000-57 for horizontal direction of the 8351A
K&M 24481-000-57 + K&M 24354-000-57 for vertical direction of the 8351A

The following additional parts are needed: 4 pieces M6x14 & 4 washers

Does anybody own a K&M 24481 wall mount? Could you guys check if an XLR cable could pass through one of the two square holes on the back of the mount?

I guess it fits if you disasseble it first. But not without it.

Hi,

Just today installed two 8351 wh to wall using these K&M wall mounts, 24481 WH and adapters 24354 WH. Worked well, stable and good quality. Unfortunately had to purchase these as the Genelec mounts for 8351 are only available in black. Wink Ilkka at Genelec!!

Also can confirm that you can route XLR through theŇ°e mounts. Might need disassembly, but should actually be easier than the actual installation of these.

As new hifi person I'm truly amazed about the sound of 8351s.
